A judges' panel of motion picture professionals has been chosen to select the winners of a nation-wide "Battlefield Earth" logo design contest for student and amateur artists.

The contest offers a grand prize of $1,000 and possible screen credit on two upcoming movies from Hollywood - Salem Productions' back-to-back theatrical film versions of L. Ron Hubbard's science fiction bestseller of alien invasion and conquest, "Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000."

The judges' panel for the logo competition - open to student and amateur artists throughout the United States, and offering three top cash awards and 20 runner-up prizes - includes these film professionals.

* William Immerman, head of Salem Production and producer of such films as Southern Comfort and Take This Job and Shove It.

* Ken Annakin, director of The Longest Day, Battle of the Bulge, Swiss Family Robinson, and Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines.

* Abraham Polonsky, whose screenwriting credits include Body and Soul, Madigen, Monsignor and Mommie Dearest.

A Salem Productions spokesperson said the top entry in the "Battlefield Earth" logo contest will receive a grand prize of $1,000 and a Hollywood screen credit if the winning artwork is selected for use in the film production or on titles.

Second and third prizes of $750 and $500, respectively, and 20 runner-up prizes also will be awarded.

Complete contest rules and entry forms, which must be post-marked no later than midnight, October 31, can be obtained by writing to: "Battlefield Earth Movie Logo Contest," 2210 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 453, Santa Monica, Calif. 90403.
